There's enough light now to be able to work on the Mill Hill designs again. I have a couple of large ones which need finishing off from last year (one of them from the year before, to be exact.) And a new one I got recently. They are nicely secured in a tin so when I'm not working on them, a little border collie who likes to chew things can't get at them.
When I was looking through those old Farthing Wood Friends mags, I came across an article about swallows that showed a photo of them gathering on telephone wires. It used to be a common sight in late summer through to autumn. They'd gather together like that before setting off for their migrations to escape the winter. That was in the late 80's-mid 90's. Now, there are so few of them that you don't see them doing -
Getting the synopsis's done for the Dresden Files books today of the ones I've read. Would like to do a small review on what I thought about them, etc, but I started making Mean Streets after I had begun reading them and was well into the series by then. (I might save that idea for when I start a new series.) I'm getting near to the end of the series now, and into the hardbacks I have.
